Artist-In-Residence: Marty Stuart – The Pilgrim

The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum proudly welcomes country music torchbearer Marty Stuart as its 2019 artist-in-residence. Stuart will preside over the Museum’s CMA Theater stage on September 11th, 18th, and 25th, both curating and performing at three one-of-a-kind shows.

Each year, the museum invites a noted artist or musician to give a series of original performances that highlight their career and explore their artistry. Every artist-in-residence has a strong connection to country music or has a sense of country music’s contribution to American culture.

About Marty Stuart

A five-time Grammy winner and recipient of the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance, Marty Stuart began his musical career at 12 when he joined the Sullivan Family Gospel Singers. After stints with bluegrass great Lester Flatt’s Nashville Grass and Johnny Cash’s backing band, he embarked on a solo career that resulted in hits including “Hillbilly Rock” and “Tempted.”

In the early 2000s, Stuart formed the Fabulous Superlatives, a band whose musical skills and sensibilities echo the vibrancy of their Western suits. The Superlatives issued their latest album, the critically acclaimed Way Out West, in 2017.

A renowned collector, Stuart is currently developing The Marty Stuart Congress of Country Music in his hometown of Philadelphia, Mississippi. The facility will house a performing arts center as well as Stuart’s extensive collection of country music artifacts and memorabilia.

“Marty Stuart has made country music his life’s work. For nearly 50 years, he’s preserved its history, photographed its legends, and performed its music with integrity,” said Kyle Young, CEO of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. “Marty has been an integral part of so many significant events here at the Museum, and his residency promises to deliver more historic moments.”
